Our friends at NESN have been counting down the 25 best Sox games the station has ever broadcast, and the current tabulation can be found here. My own dark horse candidate, however, is Hideo Nomo’s no hitter at the beginning of the 2001 season. This was before the “all singing, all dancing” vibe of 2004 hit us, and we were struggling for any positive omens we could get. And Mike Lansing’s no-no-saving snare of a bloop fly for the second out of the ninth was drama at its finest. The fact that it was DO’s ianugural Sox broadcast was icing on the cake.
